From NCR: Pope Francis throws the weight of his office behind tackling climate change by David Gibson
The Vatican announced plans Wednesday to host a major conference on climate change this month that will feature leading researchers on global warming and an opening address by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
Francis should be clear and forceful in the encyclical expected later this summer. There is no doubt that we are experiencing profound and dangerous global climate change. We humans are causing that change by burning more fossil fuels than the atmosphere can safely handle. We must change course immediately or our children and grand-children will face the deadly consequences. Acting to mitigate climate change is a moral imperative of the highest order. No other issue currently facing humanity is more important. Please Francis - it's time to tell the truth to the world about this in the most forceful words at your command.
